01 June 2010
Apartment, Northern Ireland’s Bar of the decade recently hosted a beach themed Men’s Summer Style Master Class to promote men’s health and raise awareness of skin cancer.
The event, in association with Corona Extra and Ballygowan, was hosted by Radio Ulster DJ Alan Simpson and saw the best of Northern Ireland’s style experts come together in a fun event at Apartment on Thursday 27th May. Men from across Northern Ireland were given the chance to pick up a range of health, fashion and grooming tips with Jason Shankey Male Grooming; Rio/Brazil, Tigi hair and Orchid Lingerie all in attendance.?Claire Charleton, Manager of Apartment explained - “We are really enjoyed this, the second event in our series of men’s style master classes. This time it was all about getting ready for summer and more importantly how to have fun in the sun safely. All proceeds from the ticket sales went to the Ulster Cancer Foundation and an important element of the evening was the opportunity for men to learn how to spot skin cancer and what to do if they have any concerns. We also had a fashion show which highlighted what’s hot and what’s not for men this summer and waxing tips for any men out there who fancy giving the smooth look a go”?Commenting on the event Sandra Gordon from Ulster Cancer Foundation said, “Skin cancer accounts for one quarter of all cancers diagnosed in Northern Ireland and is the most common cancer diagnosed here. However, through practicing safe sun the rates of skin cancer can be decreased and we are encouraging people to be aware of the symptoms of skin cancer and keep themselves safe while enjoying the sun.
“This summer master class was certainly a great night’s entertainment but also offered a great opportunity for men to come along and ask any questions or raise any concerns they may have in relation to their skin or their general health.”
